  6. Doesn’t the powers that be see a romantic bone in his body? I swear he purposley stays away from that genre, however, being able to see him anything would be lovely.

    • TBH, I’m starting to suspect that he’s the one who isn’t interested. It’s hard to believe that in all this time, he hasn’t been cast again as a romantic lead — ever. I mean, it’s been 15 years.

  7. Just thought I’d copy from a book review (on Amazon) lest you think there is no romance. First, he mentions “the heartbreaking buildup of sexual tension between Macarena and Lorenzo Quart,” and then goes on to say: “What I liked about this story were the four strong and very different women characters: one a down-and-out ex-cabaret singer, still mourning her long-lost love; the second, a 70-something doyenne, more-or-less the brains of the bunch and one of the few remaining “Spanish aristocrats;” third, Gris Marsala, a jeans-and-sweatshirt American ex-patriot nun overseeing the church renovation; and finally the ultimate love interest of Father Quart, Macarena, a 30-something dazzling beauty (and daughter of the old woman), who has an ulterior motive for almost everything. She is the story’s second central character. The women in “Seville” dwarf almost all other characters in the book, except for Father Quart, who is described as an almost unbelievably good-looking, sexy, smart, 39 year-old, stony-calm, ever-so-perfect-in-appearance-and-body-and-demeanor priest who does Rome’s bidding perfectly – well almost.” 😉

  9. Well, I just went to the library and checked out the book, and read the first 50 pp. It’s not as bad as the synopsis about the church killing people suggests it might be. If Armitage read the novel I can see why the character would have appealed to him. Unfortunately I now have to read some Kant.

    • “Unfortunately I now have to read some Kant.”

      My Brain:
      Don’t say it
      Don’t say it
      Don’t say it
      Don’t say it
      Don’t say it
      Don’t say it
      Don’t say it
      Don’t say it

      Me: So you mean you can’t read that novel at the moment?

      • I forgive you 🙂 Although if I were a philosopher by training (as opposed to just having studied its history in grad school) I might roll my eyes. They must hear so many horrible jokes.

        And, apparently, I am having a problem concentrating on Kant. Not to go so far as to say that I can’t read it, but I probably need to turn off all of my screens.

  10. I wonder if he will be clean shaven Hope so. He is well cast for unbelievably good-looking.

  11. 🙂 Thank you for the link!
    It would be funny, if we could watch him wearing a cassock, while running in the Vatican’s stairs, driving a Ford fiesta or a Vespa scooter around Rome city.
    Just kidding !
    As being the perpetrator of lot of crimes as movie-actor, this priest’s role affords him a real opportunity to penance for his sins. He needs to pray for himself, to expiate for him, and from then on to learn there to lead a holier life in his next professional opportunities.

  12. Well, I guess we won’t be watching for the ‘plot’ in this one!

  13. The character’s just down Richard’s alley. This is not your usual priest. Even if this came to nothing in the end, which I hope it won’t for it’s quality material, I thoroughly recommend reading the book.

  14. I do like the idea of RA playing an unbelievably good looking, sexy, stony-calm, smart detective priest. I would love to see him acting in a clever story even if there is no love interest. But I hope the announcement is true and that we will have the chance to watch the film if only on DVD

  15. I have found an old article posted in the Peruvian press in August 2014. Since the people on board remain unchanged, I thought it may still be of interest. Here’s my translation: https://1drv.ms/b/s!Au-GGq9Eamz2guUkSFT5iLVWv1O8eA And here’s the link to the original article: https://elcomercio.pe/luces/libros/piel-tambor-arturo-perez-reverte-llegara-cine-354226

      • I love languages. My native tongue’s Spanish and I’m an English teacher. I have quite a good command of Italian. As regards French, I understand more than I can produce at the moment; I haven’t used it in a long while so it’s rather rusty. 😉
